Transportation in and around Tokyo

Overview- A network of train lines run by JR East Japan and the subway lines of Tokyo Metro and Toei link stations that are located near hotels, convention venues and around districts for shopping, dining, cultural enrichment and leisure activities. International symbols and signage are available in English, Korean and Chinese at the stations. Train timetables are located on the platforms and are very reliable since the trains in Tokyo run on time. Taxis- In central Tokyo, taxis are a convenient way to get around town. At train stations, hotels and convention venues, passengers can board taxis that are lined up at designated spots. At the corner of an intersection or along a busy street, you can hail an approaching taxi by raising your hand. Shinkansen – All six lines depart from Tokyo Station, and certain bullet trains also stop at Shinagawa Station and Ueno Station. The Hokuriku Shinkansen that connects Tokyo, Toyama and Kanazawa opened in March 2015, making access from the Tokyo metropolitan area much more convenient. Passengers also can reach such northern destinations as Aomori, Akita, Yamagata and more; head west to Kyoto (approx. 140 trains a day), etc.; and to the south, including Hakata on Kyushu island. Niigata along the Japan Sea and Nagano in the central Highlands (known as the Roof of Japan) are a few of the many other popular destinations served by the bullet trains. Here’s a sample of how convenient it is to reach other major cities from Tokyo by Shinkansen – Sendai (1:40); Nagano (1:30); Kanazawa (2:30); Kyoto (2:18, Nozomi); and Osaka (2:33, Nozomi).
